Subject: Great B&W shots of the show
Subject: Decent Show. Decent AUD Fidelity,
Subject: Sick second set
Better than average AUD recording. Kinda sparse at the bottom end, but hats off to the tapers for working a good recording out of the 70's era equipment.
Subject: If you like '76...
Sound is great to my AUD-loving ears. If you like to "hear the room" then you'll want to get this one. Thanks to the folks who taped it so we can dig it all these years later.
Subject: Yeah THATS it for me folks
Subject: agree and disagree
"Jesus fucking christ!!!"
For a '76 audience sound quality is great - there are some serious defects though especially a cut music and a disastrous arnd and arnd which is a real pity.
Subject: I'll go for the D.L...
Subject: One rocking show!
First off the preformance is excellent, five stars to be sure. Great singing, song selection and mostly good sonics. This was the period when Jerry used a Travis Bean guitar. The TB had a aluminium neck. Didn't go over big with the general public, but Jerry put it to good use in the Dead context. Very clear lead tone. Kind of country kind of state of the art (76 that is!).
So why only four stars? Well, it's an audiance tape. There are a couple of volume adjustments late in set two. Probably the biggest crime is the fade out on the set one closer: The Music Never Stopped. Well, the recordest was probably short on tape. What ya going to do? Listen to it anyway!
Here's the best part of this recording: it's an audience tape. Huh? Well, this crowd is amped from start to finish. It's great to hear the band play with and harness the energy. Set one: starts rockin, eases into some soft places, works into some great Dead favs (Brown eyed), finishes with a statement of what's to come (Music Never Stops).
Set two gives this crowd what they came for. A rockin Might as Well starts off a killer set. The Help Slip boxes in lots of dead goodies. The Slip/Frank/Around and Around closes out what I'd call a great show from 76. Recommended
